Disparities in the wages paid and the roles assigned to different genders have been well documented and publicized. These differentials, however, have resulted in continued and increased criticism of gender-based societal constructs.

This presentation and discussion will focus on gender roles in sport and how these influences manifest themselves in the classroom. in a time when we should continually challenge ourselves to create more inclusive classroom environments, this fundamental construct is oftentimes ignored, leading to a continuous cycle of inequality.
